    More Safety Surround Pictures

    I got more & better pictures of Marcus in the Safety Surround today. :) I really like the belt fit on him. Plus I like the way the wings surround him. Another plus of this seat is that the screws come already installed in the arm rests of the seat, so no need to install them. :) YAY!

    I don't have any other picture besides this one right now, but I can get others if there are any other requests for pictures. Overall we really like the seat alot.

    Boosters for smaller kids

    I am starting to think about boosters for Marcus for ym DH's car. He is nearing 40lbs & DH has asked if he could booster him. I told him that he could possibly booster him at age 5 & 40lbs. So, we're almost there. I know I need a seat that fits smaller more petite booster riders well. I also...

    The Maestro on airplane

    I am wondering if anyone had ever flown with the Maestro before? DH is planning to fly to TX to visit a friend in May & take Marcus with him. I am not planning on going with them. My thought was to send the Maestro with him as it is very light weight & easy to install. However I am not sure how...

It seems pretty padded & nice to me. They do not have the DLX there at the store only online, so I have not actually...
